The fate of struggling supermarket chain Franklins is expected to be revealed on Monday (26 February), the day when parent group Dairy Farm International Holdings is due to report full year earnings. Australia's third largest supermarket is expected to post losses totalling A$100m for 2000, on top of the A$60m accrued in 1999. This brings total debt to A$500m and has left analysts spending much time speculating on the value of the 287 outlet strong chain.
